I'll just drop these here, given the lack of a unique lineup post today.
|HOUSTON ASTROS||BOSTON RED SOX|
|Robbie Grossman - LF||Brock Holt - SS|
|Jose Altuve - 2B||Dustin Pedroia - 2B|
|Chris Carter - DH||David Ortiz - DH|
|Dexter Fowler - CF||Yoenis Cespedes - LF|
|Jason Castro - C||Mike Napoli - 1B|
|Jonathan Singleton - 1B||Daniel Nava - RF|
|Matt Dominguez - 3B||Will Middlebrooks - 3B|
|Jake Marisnick - RF||Jackie Bradley - CF|
|Marwin Gonzalez - SS||Christian Vazquez - C|
|Scott Feldman - RHP||Allen Webster - RHP|
The big news is that the hand contusion that kept Cespedes from finishing Wednesday's game against the Reds is not keeping him out for the opener against the Astros. The odd man out for today is Xander Bogaerts, whose slide has reached its worst stretch with a 6-for-43 showing in August.
These are not fun times, to say the least...
